Julie Heffernan’s oil-on-canvas compositions recall Pieter Brueghel and Hieronymous Bosch in their intricate detail and allegorical overtone. Richly pigmented and realistically rendered, her imagery is fantastical—cratered meteors, tiny decapitated heads, vine-tangled trees, creatures with glittering white teeth—combining to create bizarre worlds that look like illustrations of an imaginary cosmology. A professor of fine arts at Montclair State University in New Jersey, Heffernan has paintings in museums across the country and has exhibited everywhere from Tokyo to Paris to Kalamazoo.
